Who knew?

The Pet Shop Boys continue their 80's wave of far and away, the most popular search term that leads to my humble blog is, "I've got the brains, you've got the looks."

Either that or there's a whole new generation of young'uns who watch Beauty and the Geek, but has never heard its theme song, and is looking to ME to enlighten them as to its title.

It's Opportunities, kids. Let's make lots of money!

Her first celebrity.

A-Vo had her first celebrity sighting last weekend. Can you guess who it was?

What's wrong with this picture?

Having video game tournaments at the public library.

Do people think that if they get kids to play video games within the walls of the library, that they'll be reading by osmosis? Or get smarter by just being in the building?

best line on a TV show, probably ever.

Former chief resident surgeon: "See, I was just fired from my job..."

Patient: "Shut UP! You just got fired from being a doctor and they let you cut open my ASS?!?"

FCRS: "Could you stop talking for 8 seconds and let me finish?"

Help a sister out...

1) Google my name.
2) Look at my picture on my employer's website.
3) Participate in my new poll.

Your responses will determine my next course of action...

Genius alert.

In order to get access to my e-mail, I need to complete a training session held on the hospital's educational website. Here are the instructions to log on to said website:

Your Student User ID is:
- The first 3 letters of your first name (see your time card)
- Your birth month and day (4 digits)
- The last 4 digits of your Social Security Number

If you really need to refer to your time card for the first 3 letters of your first name, perhaps employment at this facility is not in your best interest at this time....

I'm a superfreak, superfreak, I'm supah-freaky!

I'm one of those freaks that starts celebrating Christmas as soon as the last trick-or-treater leaves my doorstep I LOVE Christmas! some of you may remember the year when you received Christmas cards in July. So you can imagine my elation at finding an "all-Christmas music, all the time (ACMATT)) radio station up here in our new locale. And then you can imagine my ire and anger at fact that said station sucks butt.

What do I want to hear on the ACMATT station ? I want to hear Josh Groban belting out "O Holy Night." I want to hear "Jingle Bell Rock," "Feliz Navidad" by Jose Feliciano, and "Rockin' around the Xmas Tree." In other words, the old favorites.

I do NOT want to hear:
the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Michael Bolton murdering "I'll be Home for Christmas"
Jingle Bells played on the banjos

OR cheesy light rock favorites the station is trying to pass off as pseudo-holiday music, such as:
Hands, by Jewel
From a Distance, by Bette Midler, which may well be one of the worst songs ever written.

I've got the brains, you've got the looks...

So, in order for me to do my job, I need access to the hospital's computer charting system. It's like, essential. So imagine my surprise when my "training" consisted of somebody handing me a thick packet with a CD and telling me to "review it, it's really self-explanatory." O-K. BUT...the email system is a different story entirely...despite the fact that I have used the hospital's email software program in 3 different hospitals since 2001, they absolutely, positively, WILL NOT activate my email account until I complete the email training session. Even after I pled my case to 3 different people.

So, in summary:
Accessing your patient's labs and other info: figure it out yourself.
Checking your email: don't even ask unless you've completed the training course.


Thanks, Arby's!

Whoever thought that these:

were a good idea?

Southwest Mini Egg Rolls! Mmmmm!

I don't really think that Tex-Mex and Chinese were 2 cuisines that were meant to be fused.

I'm back at work. A-Vo's back at school. Sigh. My blog has taken a turn for the boring. Hopefully, Britney Spears will soon do something shocking to bring this blog back to the cutting edge.

I guess I could send a big shout-out to the chap in Ontario who found my blog by searching Google for "find used pantyhose." Sure don't want to know why he was searching for THAT.
